Deuteronomy 32

32:1 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O
 earth, the words of my mouth.
32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill
 as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the
 showers upon the grass:
32:3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye
 greatness to our God.
32:4 [He is] the Rock, his work [is] perfect: for all his ways
 [are] judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity: just and
 right [is] he.
32:5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot [is] not [the
 spot] of his children: [they are] a perverse and crooked
32:6 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise?
 [is] not he thy father [that] hath bought thee? hath he not
 made thee, and established thee?
32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many
 generations: ask thy father, and he will show thee; thy elders,
 and they will tell thee.
32:8 When the Most High divided to the nations their
 inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the
 bounds of the people according to the number of the children of
32:9 For the LORD'S portion [is] his people; Jacob [is] the lot
 of his inheritance.
32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling
 wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as
 the apple of his eye.
32:11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her
 young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on
 her wings;
32:12 [So] the LORD alone did lead him, and [there was] no
 strange God with him.
32:13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he
 might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck
 honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
32:14 Butter of cows, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and
 rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys
 of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou hast waxed fat,
 thou art grown thick, thou art covered [with fatness]; then he
 forsook God [who] made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of
 his salvation.
32:16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange [gods], with
 abominations they provoked him to anger.
32:17 They sacrificed to devils, not to God; to gods which they
 knew not, to new [gods that] came newly up, whom your fathers
 feared not.
32:18 Of the Rock [that] begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast
 forgotten God that formed thee.
32:19 And when the LORD saw [it], he abhorred [them], because of
 the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see
 what their end [will be]: for they [are] a very froward
 generation, children in whom [is] no faith.
32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with [that which is] not
 God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I
 will move them to jealousy with [those who are] not a people; I
 will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
32:22 For a fire is kindled in my anger, and shall burn to the
 lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and
 set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
32:23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend my arrows
 upon them.
32:24 [They shall be] burnt with hunger, and devoured with
 burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the
 teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the
32:25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both
 the young man and the virgin, the suckling [also] with the man
 of gray hairs.
32:26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make
 the remembrance of them to cease from among men;
32:27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest
 their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, [and]
 lest they should say, Our hand [is] high, and the LORD hath not
 done all this.
32:28 For they [are] a nation void of counsel, neither [is there
 any] understanding in them.
32:29 O that they were wise, [that] they understood this, [that]
 they would consider their latter end!
32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand
 to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had
 shut them up?
32:31 For their rock [is] not as our Rock, even our enemies
 themselves [being] judges:
32:32 For their vine [is] of the vine of Sodom, and of the
 fields of Gomorrah: their grapes [are] grapes of gall, their
 clusters [are] bitter:
32:33 Their wine [is] the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom
 of asps.
32:34 [Is] not this laid up in store with me, [and] sealed up
 among my treasures?
32:35 To me [belongeth] vengeance, and recompense; their foot
 shall slide in [due] time: for the day of their calamity [is]
 at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
32:36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent for his
 servants: when he seeth that [their] power is gone, and [there
 is] none shut up, or left.
32:37 And he shall say, Where [are] their gods, [their] rock in
 whom they trusted,
32:38 Which ate the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the
 wine of their drink-offerings? let them rise up and help you,
 [and] be your protection.
32:39 See now that I, [even] I [am] he, and [there is] no god
 with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither
 [is there any] that can deliver out of my hand.
32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
32:41 If I shall whet my glittering sword, and my hand take hold
 on judgment; I will render vengeance to my enemies, and will
 reward them that hate me.
32:42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall
 devour flesh; [and that] with the blood of the slain and of the
 captives from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
32:43 Rejoice, O ye nations, [with] his people: for he will
 avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to
 his adversaries, and will be merciful to his land, [and] to his
32:44 And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the
 ears of the people, he and Hoshea the son of Nun.
32:45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all
32:46 And he said to them, Set your hearts to all the words
 which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your
 children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
32:47 For it [is] not a vain thing for you: because it [is] your
 life; and through this thing ye shall prolong [your] days in
 the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
32:48 And the LORD spoke to Moses that same day, saying,
32:49 Ascend this mountain Abarim, [to] mount Nebo, which [is]
 in the land of Moab, that [is] over against Jericho; and behold
 the land of Canaan which I give to the children of Israel for a
32:50 And die in the mount whither thou goest, and be gathered
 to thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was
 gathered to his people:
32:51 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of
 Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of
 Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children
 of Israel.
32:52 Yet thou shalt see the land before [thee], but thou shalt
 not go thither to the land which I give the children of Israel.
